No, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said anything, but I believe his program
works for mates <=13.

However it was a nice test, this is what I found (with fastest ext settings):

00:47 WM15 1. Rxg7+ Rxg7 2. Rxg7+ Kxg7 3. Qe7+ Kg8 4. Qe8+ Kg7 5. h6+ Kxh6 6.
Qf8+ Kh5 7. Qf7+ Kh4 8. Qxh7+ Kg3 9. Qg6+ Kh4 10. Kf2 Qc5+ 11. Kg2 Qg1+ 12. Kxg1
d6 13. Qg5+ Kh3 14. Qg2+ Kh4 15. Qh2x

Well, I call it 'Pretz', but should maybe rename it to 'Fluke' ;)
And no, it doesn't play on the net; I was going to list the reasons
for that, but there are just too many ...


PS: I changed my egtb probing after your tips, and now the nps rate is much
better; but I still can't solve that WM48 problem after Rb6, I guess probing
during extensions is very important there, and I don't do that anymore.
Hashing succesful probes is the next step; thanks again ...
